Dear Matthew,

According to your recommendation ....  (as following). When I do make at 
/usr/src/sur.sbin/sendmail it show as following.
ns1:kamolpat:/usr/src/usr.sbin/sendmail>make clean
rm -f sm_os.h sendmail alias.o arpadate.o bf.o collect.o conf.o 
control.o convtime.o daemon.o deliver.o domain.o envelope.o err.o

udb.o usersmtp.o util.o version.o mailq.1.gz newaliases.1.gz

ln -sf

-I/usr/src/usr.sbin/sendmail/../../contrib/sendmail/include -I. -DNEWDB 
-D_FFR_TLS_1 -I/usr/local/include/sasl -DSASL=2 -std=gnu99 
-fstack-protector  -c 
In file included from 
error: sasl/sasl.h: No such file or directory
error: sasl/saslutil.h: No such file or directory
In file included from 
error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before ':' token
error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'sasl_conn_t'
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/usr.sbin/sendmail.

then I try to find where is sasl.h

ns1:kamolpat:/usr>find . -name "sasl.h"

What should I do next? Shold I just copy the sasl.h to 
/usr/src/contrib/sendmail/src/sendmail   ?
